Also it was reported that on July 3 six citations were issued to minors in the tent section relative to alcohol possession./T-dock Project It is anticipated that the t-dock will be installed during July./Roofing- The roofing project at the main residence has been completed./Nature Center Exhibit Team- Etzel and Little have narrowed the Exhibit Team field down to a manageable number. The Board reviewed the choices and were in agreement that it appeared to be a good group of people. The exhibit team will be meeting on July 29 and 30 with Terry Brown and Janet Danek of the Design/Fabrication firm./Grant Application- It was reported that the grant application submitted to the Tama County Community Foundation had been denied. It was discussed how the Foundation Board was faced with a tremendous amount of applications for very little money...... a daunting task.

A request received from Phillip Williams to lift the ban placed on him in July, 2004, was reviewed. After hearing opinions issued by the county attorney and arresting officer it was moved by Anderson, seconded Little, that the ban on Phillip Williams relative to use of all county parks remain in place for an indefinite period of time, carried. (All voting aye)

The Board discussed information regarding installation of de-icers at the site of the new t-dock for south loop camp area. After considerable discussion no motion was offered to purchase the de-icers.

After discussion it was moved by Anderson, seconded Benda, that a letter respectfully declining the offer be issued to the Board of Supervisors, carried. (All voting aye.)

After discussion of conservation topics of interest it was moved by Little, seconded Anderson to adjourn, carried (All voting aye). Adjourned 9:45 p.m.
